Paloma Faith too mad for videos
Paloma Faith is "too mad" to direct her own music videos.
The 'Stone Cold Sober' hitmaker said that although she is enjoying her pop career, she want to branch out into other areas of the media, and direct music videos - although her record company aren't confident enough to let her make her own yet.
She said: "I'd especially like to direct videos I think. I'd like to do my own but my label don't trust me to do it. When you're a new artist they play it safe and I think they think I'm too mad."
The 24-year-old singer - who has had a number of interesting jobs while forging her singing career including a sales assistant in a lingerie shop, a singer in a burlesque cabaret, a life model and a magician's assistant and is also a moderately successful actress - said she hopes she has forged enough of a career not to have to go back to working menial jobs.
She added: "I've never been an arrogant person and I'm not taking any of this for granted - I know a lot of singers are here today, gone tomorrow, so I'm trying to enjoy it all.
"I think I've done enough to never have to go back to working in a bar or something like that. If I could, I'd definitely like to be an artist that sells really well and has a career that has five or six albums in them, but I'm realistic."
Paloma's debut album, 'Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful?' has sold over 100,000 copies.Posted on 10 Mar 2010 07:00 to category : Music News
